Advisers normally are faculty with a background or specialties related to the human services area (anthropology, psychology, sociology). Because LAHS students pursue varied careers, they are advised to include in their programs courses appropriate to their career plans. In all instances, students should consult with their advisers when designing their programs. Students should discuss the arrangement of their field experience with the LAHS internship adviser no later than the fall semester of their junior year. Information concerning specific field placements can be obtained from the directory of the Career Services or the LAHS internship adviser. No grades below C- are allowed. Courses may not be taken S-N, unless offered S-N only. A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required in the major to graduate. The GPA includes all, and only, University of Minnesota coursework. Grades of "F" are included in GPA calculation until they are replaced.
